Just gone done installing my h220. The one I got included a missing screw receiver on the backplate so I used my h60 backplate instead. Still, this installation was harder then any of the corsair units I have used since they make it much easier by screwing MM screws into the backplate and let you tighten down thumb screws onto them so you don't have to hold the backplate in place.

Also I purchased one of these, cut the cables for the case fans and hooked it up to the pump so that I could control the pump seperate from the fans while insuring that pump would get the full 12V that it needs for proper operation.

Not sure what your point is there. Placing the radiator outside the case will only help the liquid get cooled.

So if I didn't mind having my radiator on the outside of the case, I'd probably do that too... Like I said, I'm not sure of the point of your statement but, glad it's working for you.

First off I would like to apologize. I have never done anything like this before and I made the mistake of forgetting to add screenshots with Prime95 running in the background. If your anything like me all you want to see is a pictures and some graphs.

The tested hardware using Prime95 Small FFT's for 30mins. I am using RealTemp for CPU readings before and after test. Idle temp readings will be taken 5mins before Prime95 Small FFT's is started.

Fractal Design Arc Midi 2
Case Fans Noctua NF-F12 5x(Two Intake, Three Exhaust)
All fans controlled in bios by Swiftech 8 Way PWM Splitter unless other wise stated (CPU - Standard Setting In Bios)

I used Swiftechs HydrX PM 2 Coolant for all my tests found here,

Thermal Compound AS5 using the "Tiny Dot" method also known as " Grain of Rice" for my application found here at Hardware Secrets

Gigabyte GTX 670 2GB (Stock)
SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W PSU
Windows 8 Pro

Test 1: Thermalright Ultra Extreme 120 Rev. B (Lapped)(Push)
All 5x Noctua NF-F12 case fans using the Swiftech 8 Way PWM Splitter plugged into CPU Header controlled by the bios using CPU Standard Setting.
Room Temp: 64.2°F
Idle Temp: 28°C, 23°C, 27°C, 24°C
Load Temp: 69°C, 73°C, 76°C, 74°C

Test 2: Swiftech H220 (Pull, Exhaust out the top of the case)
All 5x Noctua NF-F12 case fans using the Swiftech 8 Way PWM Splitter. Swiftech H220 pump plugged into channel one on the splitter controlled by the bios using CPU Standard Setting.
Room Temp: 63.1°F
Idle Temp: 18°C, 15°C, 21°C, 17°C
Load Temp: 68°C, 70°C, 73°C, 72°C

Test 3: Swiftech H220 (Pull, Exhaust out the top of the case)
All 5x Noctua NF-F12 case fans using the Noctua L.N.A. and Swiftech 8 Way PWM Splitter. Swiftech H220 pump plugged into CPU Header controlled by the bios using CPU Standard Setting.
Room Temp: 62.8°F
Idle Temp: 21°C, 17°C, 21°C, 18°C
Load Temp: 63°C, 65°C, 67°C, 67°C

Now for the only results most people care about. How much will my temps drop by adding an extra radiator to my loop? For my results keep on reading.

Test 4: Swiftech H220 (Pull, Exhaust out the top of the case) and Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 240mm (Pull, Intake front of the case)
All 5x Noctua NF-F12 case fans using the Swiftech 8 Way PWM Splitter. Swiftech H220 pump plugged into channel one on the splitter controlled by the bios using CPU Standard Setting.
Room Temp: 64.4°F
Idle Temp: 21°C, 17°C, 22°C, 18°C
Load Temp: 67°C, 70°C, 71°C, 69°C

Test 5: Swiftech H220 (Pull, Exhaust out the top of the case) and Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 240mm (Pull, Intake front of the case)
All 5x Noctua NF-F12 case fans using the Noctua L.N.A. and Swiftech 8 Way PWM Splitter. Swiftech H220 pump plugged into CPU Header controlled by the bios using CPU Standard Setting.
Room Temp: 63.9°F
Idle Temp: 20°C, 16°C, 21°C, 17°C
Load Temp: 63°C, 65°C, 65°C, 65°C

Using options one, two and four you can not even tell the computer is even on, it is that quiet. Then with test results three and five you can see there is little to no gain adding the extra radiator for cooling just your CPU. Looks like I better order that Heatkiller GPU block or I just through a bunch of money away. These are my results from the average Joe whose St overclock was done using the #2 pencil mod on a AMD T-Bird. I did this just to see what I would gain from each method tested. Your results may vary and I hope this will answer some questions for someone else in the future. I am sure that I made some mistakes and will learn from them in the future. smile.gif

Just wanted to poke my head in to say that H220s are still in stock at the Egg. Because I ordered with ShopRunner it should arrive the same day as my new FX 8350, yay! biggrin.gif

alright, i gotta ask. is there some trick to fitting correct sized tubing over the swiftech lok-seal compression fittings?

If you have the 3/8 5/8 tubing, what I did to help get it on a little easier was dip the tubing in hot water for about 30 seconds. Then it is just a matter of putting direct pressure onto the tubing and it will give biggrin.gif

like boiling hot or just "hot" tap water? and yes, i do have 3/8" 5/8" primochill advanced LRT clear tubing and 3/8" 5/8" lok-seal compression fittings.
